C&L's Late Nite Music Club With Laibach

For tonight's Music Club, we have what is to be the first foreign band to perform in North Korea.

This is, by far, one of the most bizarre bands to make it on Late Nite Music Club. It's pretty difficult to pin these guys down if you are new to their music. It seems like, based on their image and stage antics, most people can't tell if they're actually fascist weirdos or just parodying those types of people really hard. From what I can discern, it seems like these guys are a Stephen Colbert-esque pastiche of the fascist leaders that shook the politically fragile region that was Eastern Europe back in the 20th century (and, in some cases, to the present day). But, seriously, these guys are on a Groucho Marx level of not breaking character. Combine that with interview answers as vague as Tommy Wiseau's and you've got one enigma of a band. Anyway, to make things weirder, they'll be performing in North Korea, so keep that in mind if you're planning on visiting and need something to do.

What are you listening to tonight?
